It’s been a rough month for Geno Doak.
The boyfriend of Mama June Shannon was sentenced to 16 months in the slammer on Wednesday for the felony drug possession charge he received stemming from his and June’s March 2019 arrests at an Alabama gas station. Both were found to be in possession of drugs and paraphernalia, and Geno was slapped with an additional charge of domestic violence/harassment, after getting into a physical fight with June while at the gas station.
Not only has Geno been sentenced to jail time (while June skated by with just a sentence of probation and community service), but it appears that he and June have also gone their separate ways after several years together.
The pair— who have appeared on June’s WEtv reality show Mama June: From Not to Hot— are both sober now, but have admitted to spending nearly $1 million on drugs during their addiction.
The Sun broke the news that Geno was admitted into the Alabama prison system on July 29, and was given a release date of November 28, 2022. According to TMZ, Geno is not required to actually be behind bars during those 16 months, thanks to a plea deal he took. His sentence will be served through Macon County, Alabama’s Community Corrections Program.
“We’re told that while Geno is registered as an inmate, he will not be physically behind bars, but has a set of rules to follow. If he messes up, he’ll be locked up,” TMZ reports.
After Geno completes his time in-jail-but-not-actually-in-jail, he will need to complete two years of probation, as well as a substance abuse evaluation/treatment course.
June is also required to remain clean as part of her probation. Both claim to now have 20 months sober. Provisions of June’s agreement also include random drug screenings and random searches of her car, home and possessions. She is also not allowed to use alcohol or drugs, or visit places where either are used or sold, such as restaurants or bars. She must also remain employed and attend counseling.
If June complies with the provisions, all charges against her will be dismissed. If she is unable to comply, her case will go to trial.
Freedom may not be the only thing Geno’s lost recently. During a recent Live session on her TikTok account, Mama June told fans that she didn’t want to discuss Geno because she didn’t “give a f**k” what he’s been up to and that she is working on herself now. Three days ago, she posted a video in which she told her followers, “Single life ain’t so bad!”
Geno may be a registered inmate of the Alabama corrections system, but that hasn’t stopped him from posting online. Earlier this week, he posted a photo from Jensen Beach, Florida, telling his followers he’s “enjoying the sunset.”
